Human Rights Campaign is having what it’s calling “the biggest LGBT election night watch party in D.C.” at Eatonville (2121 14th St., N.W.). Suggested donation is $5-10 and includes a thank-you gift while supplies last.

Online reservations are encouraged at but that doesn’t reserve you a spot — those who want to attend are encouraged to arrive early to ensure a spot.


Cobalt (1639 R St., N.W.) will be screening results on its new TVs in the 30 Degrees (mid-floor) lounge. A Facebook page has been created for the event. RSVP there. Festivities start at 7 p.m.

The gay-friendly 6th and I Synagogue (600 I St., N.W.) has large-screen TVs, all-American food, a cash bar and commentary from Georgetown Law Professor and former Kennedy adviser Peter Edelmen from 7:30-11 p.m. Jeffrey Rosen, legal correspondent for the New Republic and professor of law at George Washington University Law School will also offer comments.

The National Press Club has a ticketed non-partisan watch party planned. Club members can meet in the Truman Lounge. The First Amendment Lounge will be open to the public. Admission is $10 for club members and $15 for non-members. Hors d’oeuvres will be served. Visit for tickets.

Never one to miss an opportunity, Special Agent Galactica (AKA Jeffrey Johnson, a winner in this year’s Best of Gay D.C. Blade awards) performs an “Election Night Rock and Roll Show With Special Raffle” at MOVA (2204 14th St., N.W.) at 8 p.m. She has covers planned of songs by some of pop and rock’s biggest acts but will also provide election night coverage. The raffle is for two tickets to Signature Theatre. Details at
